 No Allies
No allies only enemies in infectious varieties destroying me.
Everywhere I look brother hurts brother, daughter hurts mother, yet mothers can be just as dirty as brothers and here's another I'll take it further.
When we take one hand in matrimony, "I do," is said in honesty, but honestly could we be free to seek eternity? If so warn me, let me know. Let me know if openly or foolishly we have bound ourselves eternally.
My love could be so tenderly, effortlessly, continuously, willingly, flawlessly, sexually, if I did not see my enemy and this hurts me, because how could this be that my baby is my enemy? My baby is my enemy.
So I go to momma, she'll know what to do, but in those hands I was through. I go to this person I've sought compassion from all my life and the things I tell her, she tells my wife. Now how is that for irony? No mommy, no baby... only me. So I try to watch out for my children in the mist of this confusion because for them I hope it fades like an illusion.
And I have no friends merely close associates yet even our distance is as close as it gets, but if I call someone my friend, that's it you're family, come on in.
I've given and received my share of friendship pain. It's deep enough to leave a stain. So to myself & two children I'll stay, in hopes they won't turn their back some day.
No allies' only enemies in infectious varieties destroying me. Strategically attacking me in forms that say they "love me?"
I try to maintain through the pain, it's a drain, to contain & restrain this emotional train, with only one passenger going insane.  So I reflect on the past. Is it me? Have I probably, possibly, maybe made my women hate me?
Unintentionally, uncontrollably, but inevitably, forged allies into enemies.
I was born under the sign of The Twins, but are both so bad no one wins?
I await the time this cycle ends, I await the time this pain ends for me, family & friends.
Now is the cause because these twins? These personalities inside me that can create catastrophe & recklessly destroy one person... me?
I have given you fact, I have given you theory. The truth of the matter is no one can get near me, but all I know is when I look at you & you look at me, all I see is my enemy. Now is that because of me or that I truly have, no allies only enemies in infectious varieties destroying me?
